End of Year Holtimate Highlights

Tough mudder finishers

We have reached July which means the end of an absolutely fantastic financial year for us at Holt Recruitment. A huge number of memorable, often legendary, events have taken place in this time including an exciting office move in to 6500 sq.ft (EVEN closer to the beach), significant company expansion and hiring several talented new recruits, extreme fitness challenges and some very excellent costume parties.

Today, we cast our minds back to the past year to share some of our top Holtimate highlights, because we do much more than just recruitment in this office.


Aug 2016 – Marbella

We are a great believer that our team deserves to get rewarded for hard work which is why our Managing Director took the team to Marbella, Spain for a long weekend of sun, sand and sangria to say well done for our excellent efforts!


Sept 2016 – Victoria School Donation

Each year we aim to collect donations for our chose charity, Victoria Education Centre, a residential Special School in Poole. Our Managing Director paid them a visit to hand over our kind donations which went towards buying new mobility equipment for its residents.


Oct 2016 – Halloween

Holt HQ loves an excuse for fancy dress, so we dressed up ghoulish and foolish for the day!


Dec 2016 – IRP Awards

We attended the Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) awards, hosted in London. We were a proud runner up in “Best Company to Work for 2016”!


Dec 2016 – Christmas Party

This Christmas, we headed to an old converted barn for a festive three course meal, comedy act and live band.


Dec 2016 – Make-A-Wish Foundation Donations

We collected Christmas presents for the Make-A-Wish Foundation , who grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children fighting life threatening conditions. We also took part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper day, raising £185.91.


Jan 2017 – Office Move

Holt is growing rapidly and so we moved to a spacious, brand new office space filled with video games, a pool table, ping pong table, and just a stone’s throw from the beach!


Feb 2017 – Shrove Tuesday

Because no office should be without pancakes. We treated the whole office to a sugar boost for all their hard work.


March 2017 – St Patricks

With an Irish pub only down the road, it would be rude not to celebrate the day and a part of the world we recruit in!


March 2017 – Red Nose Day

We had a pie eating contest against Media Lounge, a company we share office space with to raise money for Red Nose Day. With no use of hands, we were victorious and won the challenge in the fastest time!


April 2017 – National Lookalike Day

We have some exceptional celeb twins in the office, so thought it was about time we showcased it!


May 2017 – Tough Mudder

Probably the toughest sporting activity we’ve participated in so far… 12 miles of mud and 20 challenging obstacles including 10 tons of ice, 10 ft. high monkey bars and 10,000 volts of electricity. All donations are going to our chosen charity Victoria Education Centre. You can find out more about how we got on by clicking here


June 2017 – Food Challenge

In our 2017 food challenge, we tasked 6 competitors to eat two full sized burritos in a time battle. The hidden catch? Two of the 12 burritos had an extra spicy surprise. Nathan, our recruitment consultant from the Executive division came 1st place with a speedy finish time of 4:15 seconds.


We’d like to thank all of our clients, candidates and Holt team for making such a great year.
